Who’s Flying This Thing?

Passengers on a Canadian plane had an unsettling in-flight experience after the pilot found himself locked out of the cockpit after a trip to the toilet.

Instead of slipping back inside, the Air Canada Jazz pilot was seen banging on the door and talking to his first officer on an internal phone.

Crew members were forced to take the door off its hinges to let him back in.

Luckily the first officer was still in charge of the plane, so there wasn’t any danger.

Bad Day For Relationships?

The Telegraph writes “Today is the day when couples are most likely to have a row“.

It is bucketing down outside, the summer holidays mean that you have been closeted with your loved one for longer than either of you might like and your mother-in-law is on the phone asking if you are going to her for Christmas.

It is a recipe for tension and makes today, Aug 30, the day that most couples have arguments, it is claimed.

Relationship experts say that post-holiday depression, domestic chaos, financial strains and lack of sunshine contribute to rows.

On that note I just have to say… Happy Wedding Anniversary Mum & Dad!

I Crashed My Car :(

That’s right… I crashed my MG.

I’m perfectly fine btw.

Update: I’ve still not heard what’s happening with my car. I’m getting a little frustrated. The continued adventures of my car.

Motherf**ckin’ Snakes!

Oh… My… God!

Snakes On A Plane rocks so hard it hurts.

It had a plane. It had snakes. It had Samuel L Jackson. Seriously… what more do you actually need? Wow! Yes the plot was a little thin, but do I care? No!

There was action, there were thrills, there was horror. All in a confined space, filled with tons of pissed off poisonous snakes. Gruesome deaths aplenty. I’m not sure how many people got bitten, but it was a lot, and it all happened so damn fast. I think I better stop myself there, before I give away too much.

If you haven’t seen this yet… GO SEE IT! You will NOT be disappointed.

Cinema will never be the same again.
